The Company received gross proceeds of $232,639.00 less commission of $23,263.90 paid to the agent in the Offering, Wolverton Securities Ltd. (the "Agent"). The Company previously paid a $10,000 retainer to the Agent to offset expenses incurred on the Company's behalf. Under the terms of the Offering, a total of 3,000,000 units may be sold at $0.11 per unit until September 23, 2002. Units consist of one common share and one common share purchase warrant. Each purchase warrant entitles the holder to purchase one additional common share during the first year for $0.15 and during the second year for $0.30. Agent's warrants entitle the Agent to purchase one common share from the Company at $0.11 for two years. Net proceeds from the Offering will be used to advance the Company's projects in the Philippines and for general working capital.

Drilling is planned to commence on the Company's Valderama Deposit (Pan de Azucar Project) prior to the end of the month. Approximately 1,100 meters of diamond drilling in 10 - 12 drill holes are planned with the objective of defining a mineral resource for the Valderama Deposit. An 1,100 meter drill program in late 2001 discovered a tabular, massive pyritic sulphide deposit at shallow depth, referred to as the Valderama Deposit, with associated copper, gold, silver and zinc mineralization (see news releases of July 10, January 9, 2002 and December 3, and October 2, 2001). The Valderama Deposit has been only partially outlined and is open in most directions. Based on drill results to date, and extent of geophysical and geochemical anomalies, a reasonable target objective for the Valderama Deposit is 15-20 million tonnes containing 1.5 to 2 million ounces gold equivilant. The full Pan de Azucar technical report is available on SEDAR (
